Live webcast from Bracken Bat Cave next month

Hey, y'all, this sounds really cool via BatsLive.....

A live electronic field trip will be held on September 18 at the Bracken Bat Cave near San Antonio, which is the summer home of the world's largest bat colony. As millions of bats emerge from the cave, watch the live program from 7 to 8:30 p.m. ET. 

With millions of Mexican free-tailed bats living in the cave from March through October, Bracken holds one of the largest concentrations of mammals on earth. The emergence of these millions of bats, as they spiral out of the cave at dusk for their nightly insect hunt, is an unforgettable sight. For more information about Bracken Bat Cave on the Bat Conservation International web site, CLICK HERE. Be sure to check out the spectacular video. Learn about: the Mexican free-tailed bats of Bracken Cave and other bat species, predators that wait for their nightly emergence, threats to bats including White-nose Syndrome, how you can help these beneficial creatures, how bats navigate using echolocation, cave ecology and more.
